My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Limestone University
Location: Gaffney SC
The baseball team at UNC Pembroke won three college baseball games over the Easter Weekend against the Flagler College Saints to up their record to 30-11. I got to wondering just how many colleges have the nickname “Saints”.
I found a list and it is larger than I thought. One school on the list is the Limestone College Saints which knocked UNC Pembroke out of the NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Tournament back in March.
The list below also includes at least one error. North Georgia College and State University nickname is Nighthawks.
Limestone College is located in Gaffney, SC and was established in 1845 as the first women’s college in South Carolina and one of the first in the United States. … Ten buildings on the Limestone College campus are included on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today, Limestone College enrolls more than 1,000 traditional day students and approximately 2,500 Extended Campus students at eight sites in South Carolina and on the Internet.
